Just a few days ago, I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. The pain isn't nearly as bad as I'd imagined, a few sharp stings come every now and then, but that isn't what's bothering me. According to the surgeon, I should avoid carbonated beverages for at least a week, including BEER! It's been some of the longest days of my life, but not much longer to wait now. To hold me over until then, I thought I'd create a thread to share some stories about how some of us had to hold off on drinking beer for a period of time for whatever reason. Feel free to tell any beer related story, or unrelated, share away!
